Today Whites have accepted the Jewish cinema and television
version of the Indian. Of the thousands of Whites captured
by the Indians dozens survived to tell their true but
grisly stories. They were published and widely read until
they became "Politically Incorrect." Although the
editor picked these 15 accounts with Political Correctness
in mind, the truth clearly shows through. Whites were
captured in attacks on homesteads, military patrols, wagons
trains, forts, Ohio River boats, and even on a ship.
The women and men in these tales often saw their neighbors,
relatives, and even children slaughtered by the Indians.
Yet through luck, courage, and toughness they survived. For
example: James Traverse, who was captured in 1755 during
the French and Indian War, did not return home until 1760.
Deep in Indian territory he became a great hunter among the
Indians. John R. Jewitt was captured when Indians massacred
the crew of the ship Boston off the West
Coast of Canada in 1803. He survived because the Indians
knew he was a blacksmith and could make weapons.
Indians captured Moses Van Campen and an associate -- it
was kill or be killed. Another escaping pioneer rode a
stolen pony for 80 miles and then ran another 20 miles, all
in one day, to make good his escape.
Two of the sagas
provide background for the Sioux Indians featured in
Dances with Wolves. Lavina Eastlick survived the
great 1862 Sioux Indian massacre in Minnesota in which 800
Whites were murdered in an unprovoked attack. In Mrs.
Eastlick's case supposedly friendly Indians who had
volunteered to fight for the Whites massacred the men and
then delighted is shooting the defenseless women, torturing
children to death, and watching their vile squaws murdering
small White children by beating them. Lavina Eastlick was
shot twice and left for dead. Two of her children and her
husband had been murdered so she searched for her three
missing boys, surviving by scavenging the wrecked farms and
hiding in swamps. She finally found her three boys and got
them to safety. The eldest, an eleven-year old, had carried
her baby 50 miles.
Fanny Kelly's adventure is one of
the most famous. She was headed for Idaho when the Sioux
massacred her wagon train in July 1864. She survived
amazing ordeals and hardships and in the end not only
outsmarted the Indians, but also was able to warn Fort
Sully of their treacherous scheme to capture the fort.
[Comment: After each of these and several other Sioux
Indian wars the Indians were allowed to return to the
reservation with little punishment. Finally in 1890, the
White attack on the Indians at Wounded Knee ended the last
of the Sioux wars.]
